Go shine some deer! (if that's legal in Texas) It's legal to do here as long as you don't have a gun with you.

Do a long exposure, then use the flashlight to freeze the action (trailing flash? Is that the term?). Or some interesting night lighting.

I have used 1,000,000 candle power torch (flashlight) to paint my scenes with light. I had a couple of examples but they are on my other PC back in Australia. :?

I just set up the shot on a tripod as per any normal bulb shot and exposed the scene, Then slowly played the light over the scene and illuminated it.

Takes a bit of practice, but it is worth it, especially when the scene is 200metes deeep and the flash just doesn't cut it.

I did a tower shot where I concentrated my light more towards the tower and it became the subject of the shot as it was more exposed than the surrounding area including the foreground.

I have used both a slow movement of light and also a quick flicking of the light over the whole area, both methods work well with that sort of candle power.

Have a play
